The study instrument chosen affects the preci­ sion of observations through the type of technology, and ease of instrument use for both staff and study participants. Standardization of data collection procedures is key to maximizing the uniformity of the data obtained. Study rehearsal in a fashion similar to the actual study is crucial to pretest instruments and detect flaws. For example, pretesting of a study question­ naire, also known as a pilot run, assesses clarity of questions, appropriateness of chosen categories, presence of sensitive questions, and general flow of questions.

Two types of error may occur. The null hypothesis may be rejected although it is in fact true—this is known as type I error. We may also not reject the null although it is in fact false—this is known as type II error. The probability of type I error is called the significance level of the test and expressed as α, while the probability of type II 11 12 1 Basic Concepts for Statistical Modeling error is expressed as β. Both errors are important but we cannot optimize the hypothesis testing procedure by simultaneously reducing the probability of both errors.
